. the pakistanis have been worried about india for years. that drives their policy in afghanistan and even in pakistan. i think if we could ratchet up efforts to convene a regional conference, peace conference, including china, russia, india and then the countries in the ren region, including iran, we have a chance of changing the scene. the goal would be a healthy relationship with a country that holds 100 nuclear weapons and is a democratic ally of ours. >> the aid that the president has said he's going to suspend at this point is about a third of the aid they get. hundreds of millions of dollars. the question, i guess, we have, having been told for years it was important to give them this money because it gave us sway and kept other players from stepping in and filling that void. what happens now? couldn't china step in and say you know what, we're happy to give you that cash and sort of move us out? >> they could, although the technology we're supplying, china doesn't have some of it, but they certainly could supply enough of it, maybe lower grade, and work with pakistan to make up for

as opped to fundamentals. the emerging markets, developing markets, gynea-- china, brazil, india all have better growth prospects in terms of a rather underdeveloped consumer sector and the ability to grow from that standpoint versus the developed markets. in addition they have trillions of dollars worth of reserves whereas the developed countries are in hawk to those nations so from those standpoints the developing countries are in much better shape going forward over the next five to ten years as opposed to the developed. >> gillian? >> onef the most interesting things that moodies said this week when it gave warning that it might downgrade the u.s. debt fm aaa was that it was leaving the ratings of companies, large american companies unchanged. and essentially the underlying, somethg you are already seeing in market prices where in the markets right now the risk attacks to sereign debt is actually higher than some of the big, solid american companies or similar patent in europe as well. and that's very unusual. but essentially what moodies was saying and what you are seeing in the mark
% to an effective 44.8% in 2013. when their competitors overseas in canada, in china, in india are paying a lot lower tax rate. that hurts job creation here. look, it's not the big companies anymore that are engaged in international competition. it's the small and medium businesses that are, too. we just feel that if we keep taxing our job creators, our businesses, at higher rates than our foreign competitors are taxing theirs, it will cost us economic growth. more to the point, when we keep raising taxes in washington, for ephemeral promises that never materialize, we are not fixing the problem. >> let me get to that topic. the "wall street journal" says even the $600 billion in spending cuts in stage one are worth grabbing as part of a debt ceiling vote. more broadly, democrats in the gang are making a big concession by saying the tax rate should go down, not up. >> i agree with that. >> even obama-care must be reformed. why not grab what you can? >> that's what i want to do. >> and worry about reducing the taxes down the road. >> i think that's what we're going to do. >> if they don't materi

to be sent overseas to customers and consumers and places like china, in places like india and brazil. when i say the things that we make, things that are made here in america. american economy, actually as we speak is slowly becoming more explore oriented, more manufacturing. look at some of these charts, you actually see an upturn taking place in the manufacturing sector, in the expert sector. the problem is that in the last ten or twenty years as the economy became so dependent on american consumers who are now reluctant to spend. those sectors got hollowed out really thinned out. the growth we are seeing in manufacturing, for instance, believe it or not. we are seeing upturns and we have a story in the paper today about car makers helping to drive the recovery. we are seeing upturns in the midwest in the great lakes states. they are just not big enough anymore to drive the overall economy. it used to be in the 1980s and 1970s, we would have the big inventory where they would cut back and rebuild and drive the economy out of recession and into an recovery. manufacturing isn't big enough to

differences. regional differences in pakistan. plus, this overwhelming obsession with india. so, pakistan is in trouble largely, not entirely, but largely because of its own position. >> dr. brzezinski, good morning, it's willie. i want to turn to china if we could. the problems we have are well documents. their economy will surpass the united states by 2016. there's a report in the new york times that reports in the seven years it will take new york city to build the second avenue subway line, china will have built an entire subway system. we know about the problems. we hear about it all the time. why is that? we have the workers. we have the resources. why is it that we can't keep pace? is it our political system that slows it down? >> i think the political system is in a gridlock. it's a fact. a comprehensive study. it shows congressional seats how it's overwhelming percentage of safe seats so congressman come back, come back, come back. they are entrenched. they don't have incentive to change, to move on with the times, to compromise. we have a large public that is ignorant about worl
immediately conclude that those jobs were sent overseas to india or china, but, in fact, one- third of those jobs went to canada, where they have one of the most regressive tax credits in the world, so i think our brothers up north may have something we can learn from here. this is not the only decision we made, but they have done a very effective job in neutralizing some of the differences
a decision regarding tariffs and markets, businesses make decisions, call centers move to india, manufacturing plants move to mexico. there is one simple question. are we going to face the reality of the marketplace today? if you are 55 years old, it is hard to find a job. we are not creating them fast enough. the idea that we are going to do this and ignore the weight we have created the fabric of consensus around trade is astonishing to me. i hope we will recognize that those workers are not making this decision. we are making a policy. as a result of that policy, we know some people will be thrown out of work. we should do something, minuscule, compared to the overall budget and compared to out with the opposite, to help those workers transition into some kind of new jobs. that is what is at stake here. i hope we are going to honor ronald reagan's, george bush's by partisanship that existed on this topic. if it can pass on its own, why make this big issue of passing it as part of this? pass it. thank you, mr. chairman. >> next is senator pat roberts roberts.or >> i am not pos
